Facebook recently announced that it will start rolling out a test update to certain users for the Messenger application. This new test refresh will bring a “faster and more reliable mobile-to-mobile messaging experience”, since it is Facebook’s belief that “more and more people use Facebook to connect with their friends on mobile”.
First of all, it will look completely different, as you can see in the image above, where the app is running on an HTC One mini. There will be status badges next to user names informing you whether your friends are using the mobile app or not (something which is in the current version too, really). You can also message people not in your Facebook as long as you know their mobile number (again, something you can do today with the app, when you select the option to use the Messenger application for texts too). …and Facebook emphasizes on the new look.
